Youth

Moments spent in defiance
opposing all under the sun, cursing at the night in fits of sleepless rage
with blinkered eyes unable to appreciate the grandiosity of stars above
a one track mind galloping forward gathering proof of absurdities subjected to humanity

Preaching pamphlets, highlighting the evident
atrocities in their darkest hour in need of centered attention
sign over here, join me over there
and together we shall overcome the burden of our enemies

Tragedies, one more horrific than the next
worthy causes to picket
to make a difference in some small way
only to go home with the signs lowered at the end of the day
